Police named a suspect in the murder of an Air Force veteran at a Memphis IHOP.

Memphis Police Department is searching for Derrick Harris, 61. MPD said he's wanted for the murder of Devin Wilson. 

Wilson was an Air Force veteran and father of four. He was shot and killed at a Memphis IHOP when he tried to break up an argument between a man and an IHOP employee.

The shooting happened when Wilson, along with a security guard, tried to break up a fight between Harris and his girlfriend.

Now, Wilson's wife is left to raise four children, three under the age of two, on her own.

"It's more so difficult when my babies are asking for their daddy or they are calling for their daddy," Wilson's wife, Jessica Wilson, said. "He always stopped to help, no matter what was going on, so it wasn't out of his nature at all to step in."

Jessica Wilson said Devin's daughter has lived in fear since the night Devin was shot and killed almost a month ago.

"We were riding down the street, she just randomly told me that I don't want to live here, I am scared because the guy that killed my dad is still on the run," Jessica said.

Jessica said it's important for her to make sure her children know their father loved them.

"I just want them to know every day, as much as I can, that daddy loves you. Daddy loved you. Daddy will always love you," Jessica said.

If you know anything about the whereabouts of Harris, contact MPD immediately.
